It should have gone directly into the spool.  Possible causes of this are
if you've inadvertently set a posting host in inn.conf, or if the run
directory (/usr/local/news/run by default) isn't in the same place as
nnrpd expects it to be.

This generally means there's something wrong with your newsfeeds file.
What do your outgoing feeds look like?
